Case study: Traditional-style net zero energy home in Connecticut
By John Kirchner
February 21, 2011
This 3,600-square-foot classic New England home uses some of the most advanced home building techniques and materials available to operate at net zero energy, meaning it creates at least as much, if not more, energy than it consumes. How? Thoughtful design, alternative energy sources, and high-quality, energy-efficient products — including a houseful of Marvin tri-pane windows.
The home was recently featured on Jetson Green, a popular blog about green technology and sustainable home design. In addition to the video overview above, we have a set of nice photos posted here. Learn more about Marvin’s green building efforts here.
